Panini America released preview images and basic product information for the 2009 Donruss Americana non-sport set. It’s scheduled for a May 27 release with a suggested retail price of $25 per pack. Here’s a look …
Each hobby box will include four autograph or memorabilia cards along with the typical features of the set as in previous years. There will be 100 base cards along with proof parallels, Private Signings cards, Stars Materials cards, Cinema Stars, Hollywood Legends, Co-Stars Materials, and TV Stars inserts among others.
One 100-card insert set will include Movie Posters Materials, where movie posters and as many as four swatches of actor-worn clothing are combined on the same cards, while the Casting Call set will include several signatures all on the same trapped piece of parchment on one card. The Hollywood manufactured letters return with an autograph on each patch (spelling Hollywood), while the Award Winners patches will spell the word Oscar (numbered to 50 or less).
Chris Olds has collected sports cards and memorabilia since 1987. Before coming to Beckett Media, he wrote about the hobby for the Orlando Sentinel on his blog, SportsStuff, and for the San Antonio Express-News and The Tuscaloosa (Ala.) News.
